I'd like to be able to use the QScintilla auto-completion abilities outside of a QScintilla editor in a couple different UIs which allow users to type in code constructs (specifically python code).

I can't find a way to get autocompletion information from a prepared QScintilla API file (the .pap files) without actually being inside a QScintilla editor widget.

Does anyone know if this is possible? If not, is there some documentation on the QScintilla api file format and the resulting prepared api files so I could try implementing my own autocompletion using the existing data files?

Thanks in advance,
